Our first view of the SR is promising as the Auris does have a styling approach aimed at seducing the European Hints of Italian hatches and the blend of curves and angles well. Superficially at least the ingratiates itself. Things a turn for the worse inside with the familiar blend of plastics and materials. It is possible to a list of cars Toyota when developing the Auris by around the cabin, not least the of the dials, which imitates Civic.
